Foreign media phenomena offer the best of both worlds for many local fans. They are not overexposed like the popular English-based media we see every day, meaning we are not desensitized to their appeal, but they have already proved their appeal with a large audience, and have a considerable range of available merchandise. Japanese cultural phenomena sometimes prove popular in English-speaking countries. Anime is one example, Gundam being only one longer-lasting example.

 Anime Series Gundam Australia

The Gundam Anime (cartoon) series started on Japanese television in 1979. It was quite revolutionary at the time, featuring giant robot-like vehicles, piloted by humans, in fairly realistic combat situations. Elements of this had existed before in cartoons, but Gundam combined the elements in a new way and proved far more popular than earlier programs. Gundam has since branched off into more than two dozen television shows and films and inspired many imitators. It has produced countless merchandising lines.

Models from the Gundam series are a major part of the Phenomena’s success. The original series only returned from cancelation due to the popularity of the first model kits based on the show a year later. The many spinoffs owe their success to this first model range aimed at children. Many latter models continued to prove very successful, with various companies producing different model ranges aimed at older viewers, varying in scale and made from plastic, metal, or resin.

Part of the appeal of a robot, or a robotic suit, in this case, is the combination it has of vehicle and character. Even without knowing the backstory, a robot suit has a certain innate appeal.

What Asian grocery ingredients have added to our palate


Oriental supermarkets have countless products popular with Asian customers that many westerners skip over. A little knowledge can show us how we might make great use of them, or how we have already been using them without noticing. Online Asian shopping retailers have far more products than we could list here.

SOY SAUCE: Useful if you want to replace salt, but also for so many other things. Soy offsets and enhances so many other things, it works with almost any savoury dish and even combines well with some sweet ingredients- try looking up Honey and soy on the net and find all sorts of ideas for chicken and beef.

FISH SAUCE: Perhaps this should be plural as there are several types of fish sauce, but they are all a combination of fish, herbs and fermentation. The fermentation process varies the taste from mildly fishy to savoury/nutty. The type of fish, or a combination thereof, also provides countless variations. Fish sauce can be used as a great cocktail dip, is an essential ingredient in Koran Kimchi. Many sops and casseroles contain fish sauce.

RICE WINE: So very different to western wine made with grapes it should probably be given a different category and name, yet it make distinctive sauces and marinades in the same way that western wine does.

GINGER: already part of western culture for centuries ginger did originate in southern China. One of the few things on this page that is sometimes eaten in isolation Ginger is also an additive to many condiments, curries, desserts, pastries, cookies, soft drinks … the list goes on. It is reportedly great for circulation, the immune system, nausea and has countless other health benefits.

NOODLES: Largely considered a fast food in western cultures, rather like packet soup, noodles are seen differently in Japan, where there are literally museums dedicated to their history. The numerous types of noodles in Japan are too many to list, but ingredients, with various flavours, include acorn, mung beans, buckwheat, sweet potato, arrowroot, kelp (seaweed), tubers, mugwort, green tea, tofu, soy, tapioca and of course, rice.
Gluten intolerant individuals can find several types of Asian noodles that will suit their diet, though this does not apply to every type of noodle.

TEA: So long integrated into the western diet that we forget where tea originally came from. Those only familiar with the black tea that comes in bags are in for a discovery. The many varieties of tea include green, yellow, white, oolong and Pu-erh tea, each of which must be made at a different temperature. There are websites and magazine articles dedicated to the best ways to prepare each type of tea. There are as many types of tea as there are types of bread; some teas are as different to black tea as white bread is different to croissants.
